The Nigerian Immigration Service has recently issued a new Nigerian visa policy. The Nigeria Visa Policy (the “Policy”) is designed to support the attainment of the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan, improve the Nigerian business environment and attract foreign direct investment in Nigeria, amongst other things.
A major highlight of the Policy is the introduction of the e-visas. The Policy also expanded the classes of visas from six (6) to seventy-five (75), and created visa codes for all the classes of visa.
